New Series B Closing for Clean Energy Risk Management and Analytics — Lee Taylor, CEO of REsurety Entrepreneurs for Impact (fka, Climate Torch)

    • Entrepreneurship

REsurety delivers data-driven solutions for the clean energy economy and the tools to identify value and manage risks from clean energy investments.

Lee Taylor is the Co-Founder and CEO of REsurety. Since founding REsurety in 2012 to commercialize research he conducted at Dartmouth’s Tuck School of Business, Mr. Taylor has built a rapidly growing company, gained institutional financing, and attracted top-notch talent, advisors, and directors. Today, REsurety’s products are not only award-winning, but are redefining the way clean energy buyers and sellers are thinking about and managing risk. Under Mr. Taylor’s stewardship, REsurety has amassed contracts supporting more than 5,000 MW of renewable energy generation capacity and counts many of the U.S. — if not the world’s — largest companies as customers and partners, including Microsoft, Invenergy, Capital Power, Southern Company, Nephila Climate, and Allianz.

Mr. Taylor holds an MBA from Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth, where he was named an Edward Tuck Scholar (awarded for academic achievement) and recipient of the Lt. Walter Jacobs Memorial Prize (awarded for intellectual leadership). He also holds Bachelor’s degrees in Economics and Biology from the University of Virginia.

QUESTIONS THAT WE COVERED:

Business


What does your company do? What makes you unique versus the competition?
How are you funding your growth — e.g., revenue, VC, CVC, government grants, M&A? What are 1-2 lessons you’ve learned along the way?
Outside of your current business, what other 1-2 climate or sustainability sectors seem like promising areas in which to start a business? What might those solutions look like?

Personal


If you had to start over, what are 1-2 tips you’d give yourself in order to be faster, more effective, and higher impact?
What are some habits and routines that keep you focused, healthy, and sane — e.g., meditations, exercise, productivity hacks?
What recommendations do you have for our audience — books, podcasts, quotes, tools?
What’s the nicest thing anyone has ever done for you — outside of your own family?

Closing


Do you have any requests, announcements, or final advice for our listeners?

PODCAST HOST:

The parent company of the Climate Torch podcast is Entrepreneurs for Impact.

We are the only private mastermind community for investor-backed CEOs, founders, and investors fighting climate change. We’re on a mission to help “scale up” climate leaders supercharge their impacts, share best practices, expand their networks, and reach their full potential.

Our invite-only cohorts of 11 executives catalyze personal development and business growth via monthly meetings, annual retreats, a member-only Climate Investor Database, and 1:1 coaching and strategy calls.

Today’s highly curated Mastermind members represent over $4B in market cap or assets under management, and are influencing corporate priorities and infrastructure much bigger than that.

Peer groups are led by Dr. Chris Wedding who brings $1B+ of investment experience, 50,000+ professional students taught, 25 years of meditation, an obsession with constant improvement, and far too many mistakes to keep to himself.
